Hudson holds public hearing on priority projects Oct. 30

Hudson – The town of Hudson is in the planning stages for the next round of block grant funding. In past applications, the block grant provided funding for such projects as downtown facades, the Senior Center renovation, the Cellucci Splash Park, and the reconstruction of the South Street parking lot.? Hudson will hold a public hearing Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 7 p.m., at the Town Hall, 78 Main St, in the second floor Selectmen's Hearing Room.

The purpose of this hearing is to consider submission of an application to the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) for the next round of funding from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.? Topics to be discussed at this meeting include the town's Community Development Strategy and a list of priority projects. Hudson is also considering the possibility of submitting a joint grant application with the city of Marlborough.? Projects included in a CDBG application must relate to and be reflected in the CD Strategy.? Project selection will also depend upon grant guidelines for joint applications.

Citizens are encouraged to read the Community Development Strategy and take the Community Priority Projects survey. The purpose of the survey is to gauge potential projects for the upcoming Block Grant application, as well as other future grant applications. There are approximately three dozen projects listed on the survey to be rated. There is also room to write in other specific projects that are not listed on the survey. The CD Strategy & the survey are located on the town of Hudson's website at www.townofhudson.org. Surveys are also available at the Town Clerk's Office, the Recreation Department, and the Hudson Public Library, as well as in a convenient online format at www.surveymonkey.com/s/HudsonProjects13.

Surveys are due Friday, Oct. 26.

The meeting is open to the public and any person interested or wishing to be heard will be given an opportunity to speak. The town also encourages written comments to be submitted any time to the Community Development Department.
